Here's the part about Timothy...

I also received a call from Irving Azoff, who requested that I get in touch with Tim Schmit of the Eagles and become involved in his plans to record a solo album. Irving wanted me to go to Tim’s house and hear what he planned to record. I did know Tim from the Poco years, but I hadn’t said three words to him during that period (Richie Furay was always the chatty one). I was a little anxious about calling a member of the Eagles and telling him I’d like to come and hear the material he was preparing for his solo album (imagine if Irving had wanted me to do the same with Henley and Frey…).
As expected, every time I did manage to reach Tim, he gave me the dodge or told me this wasn’t a good time, and for the first time in my professional life I learned what it was like to be considered the pesky jerk from the record company. I wanted to leave a message that said “Tim, I’m not a jerk – I actually have some understanding of the musical process,” but of course I never did; nor did I ever manage to hear one note of Tim’s music before I left the label. I had lunch in New York with Judy Collins, and had prepared for this by listening to her more recent albums. How was I to revive her career? To my ear, she was beginning to lose control of her pitch, and the only reason we were doing an album with her was because her contract required it. Elektra was actually in a similar position with many of artists whose careers had peaked some years earlier.

Yikes, harsh! I'm surprised Timothy would be so unreceptive towards someone Irving had recruited to help him.

Well, none of us really know Timothy personally but it's just hard to believe that the Timothy in the article is the guy that we all know and love.

Now see... I can totally picture Timothy blowing this guy off... in a nice way of course. I really do believe Tim has an edge to him... which of course I like!

If you click the picture link on this article, the photog talks about the pic of TBS on the boat and the pic following that is of Jackson and meantions Glenn.

Ooh, great find LTL!

I think it's hilarious that Jackson Browne apparently "re-gifted" the car Glenn gave him to a girlfriend.

Thank you Ann so much for posting that. What a great interview. Doesn't sound like we are going to get to much old stuff in concert. Loved some of the stories about the others on the cd.

He's just such a down to earth kind of guy.
